If the Comet IIs are going to be retired soon, then I'm sure that the Horizons will as well. It will be a welcoming sight to see the Siemens single level cars operating in the Heartland and also covering trains in California as well. It sounds like Siemens will be the manufacturer for the passenger cars to operate on the majority of Amtrak routes, especially in the Northeast.And the California Comet IBs (Comarrows) are even older than any other Comets in daily service, and aren’t like any other car on the rails. In good shape, but elderly orphans.
